FAIRFIELD — Police are investigating an assault reported by Fairfield University students early Sunday.

Police received a report of a man passed out on Reef Road, but when they got to the scene they found two college students who both said they had been punched in the face multiple times by a group of four to six men.

They said they were in their residence on Reef Road around 3 a.m. when they heard glass breaking outside. When they confronted the men, according to the report, they said they were attacked.

Both students were taken to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport or treatment. They said they did not recognize the attackers but they did not believe they were students at Fairfield University.
